You need AC to turn on the MLpanels an i had wonted to see if the on off set sound bad or not,All People that have the older logan have this in the Amps path,So i Needed 6-10ACV to trun on the panels All the time So i go to Rat Shak get a $10.12v tranfourmer.Now I can get the panel on all the time like the other Prodigy.An get the Amp out of the setup
